Who We Are
Third Coast Clay is a unique artist run ceramic studio in the Independence Heights area of Houston, Texas. The studio is the brainchild of ceramic artist Lotus.
The goal of Third Coast Clay is to build an inclusive ceramic community by offering classes taught by working ceramic artists. We aim to establish opportunities for those wanting to expand their knowledge of clay and those wanting to establish themselves as ceramic artists.
All classes are structured for mixed levels of experience. Whether you are curious about ceramics, experienced or haven't touched clay in a long time, our instructors are here to help you reach your potential.
